You should have been a detective. If there's one thing the last year has proved, it's how good you are at finding things out. Not simple things. Hard things. Things that nobody is supposed to be able to find out. Things that are buried so deep nobody even thinks twice about them. The sort of things that turn people's lives inside out once they're exposed.' Meet Tony Hill's most twisted adversary - a killer with a shopping list of victims, a killer unmoved by youth and innocence, a killer driven by the most perverted of desires. The murder and mutilation of teenager Jennifer Maidment is horrific enough on its own. But it's not long before Tony realises it's just the start of a brutal and ruthless campaign that's targeting an apparently unconnected group of young people. Struggling with the newly-awakened ghosts of his own past and desperate for distraction in his work, Tony battles to find the answers that will give him personal and professional satisfaction in his most testing investigation yet.

"Wie viele haben geantwortet?" "Beinah zwanzig." "Willst du jeder von ihnen zurückschreiben?" "Sie ist die Richtige", antwortete Miklós. "Und woher weißt du das?" "Ich weiß es einfach." Im Juli 1945 wird Miklós, ein junger Ungar, nach Schweden gebracht. Er hat das KZ Bergen-Belsen überlebt, besteht nur noch aus Haut und Knochen, Zähne hat er auch keine mehr. Sein Arzt gibt ihm sechs Monate. Doch er hat andere Pläne. 117 junge Frauen aus Miklós' Heimatstadt haben wie er die Vernichtungslager überlebt und es nach Schweden in Erholungsheime geschafft. Jeder einzelnen von ihnen schreibt er einen Brief. Eine dieser Frauen wird er heiraten, das hat er sich fest vorgenommen. Hunderte Kilometer entfernt liest Lili seinen Brief und beschließt, ihm zu antworten. Brief um Brief verlieben sich die beiden ineinander. Im Dezember 1945 treffen sich Miklós und Lili zum ersten Mal. Sie haben nur drei Tage. Und lieben sich vom ersten Augenblick. Nun müssen sie nur noch einen Weg finden, wie sie heiraten können.

More than two million medical students, doctors and other health professionals from around the globe have owned a copy of Davidson’s Principles and Practice of Medicine since it was first published. Today’s readers rely on this beautifully illustrated text to provide up-to-date detail of contemporary medical practice, presented in a style that is concise and yet easy to read. Davidson’s provides the factual knowledge required to practise medicine, explaining it in the context of underlying principles, basic science and research evidence, and shows how to apply this knowledge to the management of patients who present with problems rather than specific diseases. The book has won numerous prizes including being highly commended in the British Medical Association book awards. Davidson’s global perspective is enhanced by the input of an international team of authors and a distinguished International Advisory Board from 17 countries. Building on the foundations laid down by its original editor, Davidson’s remains one of the world’s leading and most respected textbooks of medicine. The underlying principles of medicine are described concisely in the first part of the book, and the detailed practice of medicine within each sub-specialty is described in later system-based chapters. Most chapters begin with a two-page overview of the important elements of the clinical examination, including a manikin to illustrate the key steps in the examination of the relevant system. A practical, problem-based clinical approach is described in the ‘Presenting Problems’ sections, to complement the detailed descriptions of each disease. The text is extensively illustrated, with over 1000 diagrams, clinical photographs, and radiology and pathology images. 1350 text boxes present information in a way suitable for revision, including 150 clinical evidence boxes summarising the results of systematic reviews and randomised controlled trials and 65 ’In Old Age’ boxes highlighting important aspects of medical practice in the older population. A combined index and glossary of medical acronyms contains over 10 000 subject entries. The contents can also be searched comprehensively as part of the online access to the whole book on the StudentConsult platform. Access over 500 self-testing questions with answers linked to the book’s content for further reading. The text uses both SI and non-SI units to make it suitable for readers throughout the globe. A new chapter specifically on Stroke Disease recognises the emergence of Stroke Medicine as a distinct clinical and academic discipline. A rationalisation of the 1350 boxes used throughout the book gives a simpler and clearer presentation of the various categories. New ‘In Adolescence’ boxes recognise the fact that many chronic disorders begin in childhood and become the responsibility of physicians practising adult medicine. These boxes acknowledge the overlap ‘transitional’ phase and highlight the key points of importance when looking after young people. The regular introduction of new authors and editors maintains the freshness of each new edition. On this occasion Dr Ian Penman has joined the editorial team and 18 new authors bring new experience and ideas to the content and presentation of the textbook. An expanded International Advisory Board of 38 members includes new members from several different countries.

Seit seiner Kindheit besitzt Anthony William eine einzigartige Gabe: Ein göttlicher Geist flüstert ihm äußerst präzise Informationen zum Gesundheitszustand seiner Mitmenschen ins Ohr. Diese medialen Botschaften zeigen nicht nur, an welcher Krankheit der Betroffene leidet, sondern auch, wie er wieder vollständig gesund wird – und sind dem heutigen Stand der Medizin oft um Lichtjahre voraus. Dieses Buch enthält erstmals das revolutionäre Heilwissen, das sich Anthony William in seiner langjährigen, erfolgreichen Praxis als medizinisches Medium erwarb. Es zeigt die wahren Ursachen von Krankheiten, die in der Medizinwissenschaft als chronisch oder unheilbar gelten, wie beispielsweise Rheumatoide Arthritis, Multiple Sklerose, Typ-2-Diabetes, hormonelle Erkrankungen, chronisches Müdigkeitssyndrom oder Borreliose. Neben der Ursache benennt William einfache, leicht gangbare Wege der Heilung: Detox, Superfoods, Ernährungstipps und eine reinigende 28-tägige Heilkur.

Das neue Buch von David Mitchell, dem Autor des von den Wachowski-Geschwistern verfilmten, genre- und zeitenübergreifenden Romans «Wolkenatlas»: ein Schauerroman par excellence. Geh die Slade Alley hinunter - schmal, feucht und leicht zu verfehlen, selbst wenn du sie suchst. Finde das kleine schwarze Eisentor in der Mauer zur Rechten. Keine Klinke, kein Schlüsselloch, aber wenn du es berührst, schwingt es auf. Tritt in den sonnendurchfluteten Garten eines alten Hauses, das dort unpassend wirkt: zu nobel für die schäbige Nachbarschaft, irgendwie zu groß für das Grundstück. Ein Fremder begrüßt dich und führt dich hinein. Zunächst möchtest du gar nicht mehr fort. Dann merkst du, dass du es nicht mehr kannst. Denn alle neun Jahre, am letzten Sonntag im Oktober, wird ein «Gast» ins Slade House eingeladen. Doch warum wurde er oder sie ausgewählt, von wem und zu welchem Zweck? Die Antwort findet sich dort am hinteren Ende des Flurs, oben am Absatz der Treppe. «Slade House» ist ein raffiniert komponiertes Schauerstück. Und auch eine literarische Hommage an die großen Klassiker der fantastischen Literatur, von «Alice im Wunderland» bis zur «Rocky Horror Picture Show» – ein Buch wie eine Escher'sche Kippfigur, von einem der einfallsreichsten und phantasiebegabtesten Schriftsteller der zeitgenössischen Literatur. Mitchell zaubert bunt und lustvoll und verzaubert damit uns.

This is a stunning new hybrid textbook that has evolved as a direct response to the increasing integration of the two disciplines of medicine and surgery in today's medical curricula. The advantage of this combined approach is it reduces the amount of reading by the elimination of repetition (and inconsistencies) to provide an integrated explanation of the common problems faced both by students during exams and clinicians in daily practice. This book's greatest asset is the ability to illustrate that medical and surgical treatment options are actually part of a continuum in the management of disease. An integrated textbook combining the two major clinical specialities of general medicine and general surgery. Written and edited by a team of physicians and surgeons supported by a team of specialist subject advisors. Puts medicine and surgery in the context of the continuum of disease management and outlines a comprehensive and structured approach to patient management. Adopts a current evidence-based approach with extensive use of national and international guidelines. A full colour textbook with innovative design features and illustrations.
